Cranberry Salsa

Post robbery, we did manage to pull together a really delicious Thanksgiving. I borrowed a camera and got some pictures. The first recipe I made is a cranberry salsa recipe I got from my mother several years ago, and have been making every year since. I love it! It’s tangy, sweet, and just in every way delightful.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 12 ounce pack cranberries, rinsed
  • 1 8 ounce can crushed pineapple
  • 1 large green onion, chopped
  • 1 small can chopped green chiles
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Bring the water and sugar to a boil over high heat until the sugar has melted into the water. Add the berries and reduce the heat to medium.

Simmer the berries for eight minutes, stirring frequently. Add the remaining ingredients, including roughly half the juice from the can of crushed pineapple.

Stir everything in and continue to cook until the berries grow tender and begin to burst.

Remove from the heat and eat, or chill and eat sometime in the next three days. It’s so good!

I hope everyone else had delightful Thanksgivings!
